Actually, soccer has gotten me to appreciate the tie.  I think the NFL should drop overtimes because no one deserves to win if they can't outscore someone in regulation.

(And are we really going to devolve into a "which sport is better" debate?)

I dislike ties. But the NFL overtime is my least favorite, followed by the NHL. Make it a shoot out or legit full extra time imo.

I'm not a fan of college football. You end up with ridiculous scores that don't represent the actual game played.

I prefer when "regulation time" isn't entirely up to the whims of one person.

Rarely feels like whims, except maybe on occasion when Fergie was still in charge at Man U. I feel like you can always peg added time within a minute or so if you're paying attention to the game.

"Within a minute or so" = whims.
And even then, it's entirely situational. If a team down or tied is attacking, the game goes on regardless of time.
I'm a soccer fan, but make believe time is a monumental flaw in the game.

100% agree.  I’m trying to get into soccer more and this is a major stumbling block.  Why can’t they just start and stop a clock for everyone to see?

A major stumbling block is probably overstated.  :)

Some interesting numbers regarding sports viewing during social justice, COVID-19, and changing technology.

When all this is over, will sports television viewership "rebound" to something more normal?

I have my doubts.

I have my doubts.

Some of the interesting points in the study...one was a large percent of people preferred to watch sports with others as opposed to alone, which people cannot do during the Pandemic. This would likely be especially true with casual fans.

Another issue is cost. Traditional cable and satellite companies became more and more expensive over time and eventually many consumers rebelled against that. As sports streaming gets more costly and difficult, those sports viewers that switched will get increasingly frustrated with higher streaming costs, more complexities with viewing etc...

And as the economic divide keeps growing, Billionaire owners, Millionaire players, costs to attend.....as it has happened with corporate management vs their average employees, animosity and apathy will keep increasing over time as well.

As the study shows, many people aren't all that affected by increased social justice positions. The other things matter much more.

Here are some of the ways people are getting their sports highlights:
